Introduction

Video games are, without a doubt, a huge part of today’s pop culture and lifestyle. One of today’s biggest games that is played all over the world is Defense of the Ancients, or more commonly known as DotA. It is a custom scenario developed by Eul for the real-time strategy game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos as well as the expansion Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. The goal of the game is for each of the teams to destroy their enemies’ Ancients, which are well-guarded structures positioned at both ends of the maps. The players of DotA use powerful “heroes” and are accompanied by AI-operated soldiers, known as creeps. Like most role-playing games, the players use gold to buy various weapons and equipment and need to kill opponents in order to level up.

DotA Dog Name Considerations

Taking on the serious responsibility of being a dog owner comes with many perks, and choosing your dog’s name is one of them. However, naming your dog can be a drag when you have no idea where to start. While you can always go for the classic and common dog names (Fido, Buddy, Spot) and move on with your life, most dog owners like to give a lot of thought into their choices.

Oftentimes, furparents like to brainstorm for ideas with the help of pop culture references. A unique source of inspiration for dog names are video games. An example of a remarkable game composed of elaborate characters is Defence of the Ancients. The game DotA is composed of 115 powerful creatures, known as “heroes”, which the players use in battle.

If you would like to give your dog a DotA-inspired name, you can choose a name from any of the heroes. Generally, it all boils down to your favorite hero. DotA players typically already have a hero that they frequently use or are well-versed in. Are you a fan of the lightning-wielding Zeus? Or are you more of an Enchantress user? Ultimately, the best way to pick a DotA is personal preference. However, you should also consider if the name of the hero is suitable for your pooch. For instance, the name “Ancient Apparition” is a mouthful and not a practical dog name choice.
